Gay marriage is a given here in Canada (and has been since 2005.) But in the United States, it’s still not nationally recognized as a legal state of matrimony.
This past weekend In New York, things got one step closer to fine, when it became the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the measure into law Friday after New York’s Republican-controlled state Senate approved it earlier that night in a 33-29 vote. It cleared the way for gay marriages to begin July 24.
And the really exciting part? A report estimated more than 21,000 gay and lesbian couples from New York would marry within the first three years and nearly 42,000 gay and lesbian couples from out of state would travel to New York for a “destination wedding.”

As many as 6,000 marchers and 2 MILLION spectators celebrated the passage of Cuomo’s bill during Manhattan’s annual Gay Pride parade.
Nice work, New York! And, once again, congratulations!

April 29th, 2011 Finding Fabulous, Marriage Miscellany | No Comments

I realized that, despite my best intentions, I’ve not updated this blog since JANUARY. Shameful, yes. But life happens. That isn’t to say I’ve abandoned my most favourite of pre-wedding distractions (because having them are CRUCIAL to avoid going into bridal meltdown!) I’ve simply gotten wrapped up in life. What’s the John Lennon lyric? Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans… truer words, my friends. Truer words.
In the meantime – check out this fab article posted on about the various vultures cashing in – or, at least trying to – on the upcoming Royal Nuptials.
Commemorative Coins, Paper Dolls & China are pretty much par for the course. But a palace-sanctioned Royal App for your iPhone or Android? That’s right – starting April 18, for the mere price of £1.79 – you can add this app to your phone and enjoy “the tradition, splendour and romance of the seven royal weddings,” including “images of wedding dresses and jewellery, gifts exchanged between bride and groom, presents from family and friends, wedding cakes and flowers.”
My personal favourite, though, has to be the Crown Jewels Condoms of Distinction.

Doesn’t it just scream ‘class’? And the best part? The following disclaimer:

“Crown Jewels Royal Wedding Souvenir Condoms are not supplied to, or approved by, Prince William of Wales, Catherine Middleton or any member of the Royal Family. Crown Jewels Royal Wedding Souvenir Condoms are a novelty condom not suitable for contraception or protection against STDs.”
I, for one, love watching weddings of this scale on TV… the hats ALONE make it worth tuning in. Will you be watching?
